I found a Yamaha CS 8 ft. It has two pedals? Is this "grey market"? If so, what are the concerns here?

Thanks

Possibly gray market. Click on this link and you can see if the serial number is built for North America or not.

As for the concerns, do a search and type in "gray market" and you'll find plenty of info to read.

It's not necessarily a bad thing if the piano checks out with an experienced tech.

Good Luck!

Not familiar with CS model. Don't believe Yamaha ever produced an 8' model. Can you confirm model and serial number? Could it have read "C5"? This would have been 6'6".

With no sostinuto it was probably not made for the US market.
